Prisoner B-3087 is a powerful retelling and true account of the individual experiences within the World War II scene of the 1930’s and 1940’s. Following the tale told by protagonist Yanek Gruener, a Jewish Pole living under the Nazi regime, readers are given a deeper perspective into the Hitler-run concentration camps and the minority populations facing persecution. The first-person point of view enables us to understand the feelings, opinions, and observations of survivors of these camps.
I would recommend this book to anyone in middle school or older, for a story that will increase knowledge of this dark period of world history.

This book is AMAZING!!!! Even in the sad parts, I was addicted to it. I advise you to read it with some chips at night on your bed. Of course five stars

This book is one of those books that you CANT PUT DOWN! It is such a good read. A very sad story in a perspective of a Jewish boy , to man who survived. The author obviously studied what he was writing . I recommend this book to anyone 9+ no matter what the age or amounts of holds. I also recommend buying this book also if you enjoy it as much as I do.This book is so amazing and a wonderful read. But warning, very sad , takes place in WWII

i so freakin love this book. but there were sad parts. like when jack gruener's parents died, along with his family. then he meets another guy in the amp, and he dies. then there's his uncle who died before he could get to the stash of money he found in a coat pocket. a LOT of people died. when i say alot, i don't mean a couple hundred. i mean like, THOUSANDS of people died. i would not read this book if you have emotion problems
